Governor Deval Patrick and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) today announced a $5 million capital grant for the Life Sciences Consortium of the North Shore (LSCNS), which consists of Endicott College, Gordon College, North Shore InnoVentures, North Shore Community College, and Salem State University. The grant will fund major lab/facility and equipment upgrade projects at the member institutions and organizations.
This weekend at Homecoming, Dr. Wylie led the dedication of our new Science and Business building, now home to the Curtis L. Gerrish School of Business, the Ginger ’51 Judge Science Center, and the Colin and Erika Angle Center for Entrepreneurship.
Since the Keys to Degrees program started at Endicott in 1992, it has been a source of pride for us. As this model continues to grow and gain notice with higher education groups, we’ve begun working with other universities to set up similar programs and expand opportunities for single parents. We just announced some very exciting news on this front – Keys to Degrees has received a grant for $700,000 to replicate its program at Dillard University in New Orleans!
Last week, we launched another thoughtful exhibit in the Halle Library Archive & Museum Gallery. Curated by Archives Director Barbara Broudo, with assistance from Office of Sustainability Director Sarah Creighton, Endicott Goes Green looks at how the College operates in an environmentally responsible manner and what steps we take to incorporate sustainability into our students’ academic and residential experience.
There are many things we’re proud of here at Endicott – and the community of employees and faculty that we’ve built is most certainly high on the list. So it was such a wonderful pleasure to see our inclusion once again on the Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of Great Colleges to Work For 2012.
We’re proud of the fact that environmental responsibility has long been a priority here at Endicott, but are especially pleased to have been commended for our efforts this year in the Princeton Review’s “Guide to 322 Green Colleges.”
After serving Endicott well over the last 50 years, we are saying goodbye to the West Classroom Building (formerly the Art Center). It was turned over to Windover Construction yesterday, who will begin dismantling the building to make way for a new chapter in Endicott’s story, the new building for Life Science and Business. When completed in summer of 2013 this new structure will usher a new era for the College. With 67,000 square feet of space to be used for business, computer science, math, and life sciences, the School of Business will have state-of-the-art classrooms, seminar rooms, team-building rooms, research facilities, and offices.

As of this fall, Endicott now offers a Security Studies minor, which covers issues related to homeland and national security at the undergraduate level. It also opens the door for additional graduate studies of this relevant topic that is rapidly gaining popularity in higher education.
Yesterday we announced some exciting news – a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education named Endicott as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for. The survey results, released in The Chronicle’s fourth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of nearly 44,000 employees at 310 colleges and universities.
